The price per gram of salt in stores has gone up by Rs. 500 per gram in Mumbai.
The sale of salt and other raw materials in the city was banned on December 30.
However, there is no restriction on selling salt at stores.
Soy products like salt, potassium salt, sodium salt and calcium salts were banned on January 1.
The Bombay High Court, in a landmark judgment in April last year, had said that selling raw materials like salt and raw materials for other uses like baking, cheese making and the use of animal parts for animal feed were prohibited.
However it also stated that salt could be sold in stores under a licence.
The new restrictions on salt sales came into effect from January 1, 2017.
The court had allowed salt sold in bulk to be sold for consumption on the premises and for use on cooking.
However, in July, the Maharashtra State Corporation for Food Safety and Standards (MSFCFS) had directed retailers to maintain separate areas for sale of products.
The department said salt sold at bulk price should be sold separately in its own area, and salt sold as a powder should be purchased in its individual unit.
